This thread will document what I hope will be an awesome grow out of SPS frags in my AIO tank. This initial post is just to get the thread started and force my hand in actually beginning some legit documentation, which I've been meaning to do for some time.

I suppose it makes sense to start off with some basic specs:

IM Nuvo Fusion 40 AIO w/ old stand
Radion gen5 xr15 pro, 2x AI Prime HD
MP40 QD, 2x AI Nero 3
Maxxspect Jump DC return pump
Aquamaxx (I think) ATO w/ kalk top off
Jebao 2.4 wifi doser
No skimmer
In tank custom caddies w/ felt filter pads
Bare bottom w/ tons of live rock
Occasional carbon in mesh bag

*Current* Parameters:
Alk ~9
Ca ~450
Mg ~1470
Salinity 35
Temp 79
pH ~8.2
Nitrate ~3 (nyos)
Phosphate 0.05 (Hanna ULR phosphate)

Not sure if I've actually figured out how to start a true tank build thread here, but if so, then next post will list corals and hopefully have some pics, too!

Some more background:

This tank has been running in some form since Fall 2001. The current tank is only the second in that time, all the rock and sand was transferred over, this was around 2016 or so. Over that entire time it has been moved around the country several times, mostly with no mortalities, but not entirely.

In the most recent move, I went bare bottom, which was just about two years ago now (Dec 2019). I've mostly had LPS and softies over the years, but recently made a move toward SPS, along with many gear upgrades.

I went a little crazy with the acro bug, especially after discovering some good auction deals on eBay. I've recently glued most of them on the rocks and am now patiently waiting for them to grow out...
